"Aircraft from the USS Enterprise conducted this afternoon flights north of Crete. The aircraft were in contact with civil aviation control towers," Elizabeth Corwin, Counselor for Press of the U.S. Embassy in Athens, stated on Friday.
"It is our understanding that Hellenic Air Force planes approached and visually confirmed the identity of the US planes.
"At the request of the Hellenic Ministry of Defense, we moved immediately to order the recall of the aircraft to the USS Enterprise," Corwin said.
